With the transfer window just a few weeks away from closing in the Premier League, we’re entering the final stretch, and that means we could see some last minute targets popping up here and there.
While most of Europe are still getting warmed up for the upcoming season, some leagues are already kicking off, like Ligue 2 in France, where Chambly will face Valenciennes on Friday evening.
According to Le Parisien, Everton and Southampton, always on the lookout for a good deal, are expected to be present at Chambly vs Valenciennes to watch the game and see who stands out.
The Toffees and the Saints will be joined by the likes of Lyon from Ligue 1 as well as other Ligue 2 clubs, such as newly relegated Guingamp and promotion hopefuls Le Havre.
Who Everton and Southampton are scouting, we have absolutely no idea, and it could just be the two Premier League sides want to see if anyone stand out, with a lot of scouts simply turning up for games because it’s football and they might be pleasantly surprised by someone.
Created in 1989, this will be Chambly’s first ever Ligue 2 game, having climbed up the leagues over the past 30 years, getting promoted 12 times and never suffering relegation.
